avoid the crowd and
travel safely in france

Cruising on French canals is certainly an excellent solution to stay away from the crowd and be safe. Relax on the deck on one of our hotel barges, enjoying gourmet cuisine, fine wines. If you don't feel like landing at Paris Charles de Gaulle airport, why not use Geneva or Barcelona facilities. Both cities are worth a visit and both have well connected international airports.

now is the right time to cruise in France.

Now that the French election is over, it's the right time to resume cruising in France. I am back from France with good news. For the first time, Saraphina, a lovely barge on Canal du Midi is taking your children on board for free. Mirage, featuring aeronautical pub atmosphere is launching the pay per day cruise program. A fantastic opportunity to experiment barging at its best at a very reasonable price. Several boats offer 15/ 20 % discount including Louisa, now the best value hotel barge on display from 1888 Euros! I also came back from Paris with 13 new comfortable barges. Look for "New" barges.

from 2 to 24 passengers

Cruising along the picturesque canals and rivers of France is a unique opportunity to discover the magnificent French waterways. Hotel barges are comfortable and often luxury vessels. They carry between 2 to 24 passengers, all of whom enjoy the celebration of French gourmet food and locally grown wines whilst exploring the countryside in the most relaxing from of travel.
